'yo, dude, where's the ****ing water at?'

That's how.
You cannot by definition enforce a recommendation. Get the PDGA to change the wording from "recommendation" to "requirement" and then you'll have a case. Otherwise I think you're getting your terminology mixed up.

I don't think this is a PDGA rule, though I suspect it will be.

In your opinion what could they have done to make it feel more like a major? Thx.

I meant specifically for Ams. I have heard stories of people playing Bowling Green just to qualify for Worlds and for some, it is their first tournament after joining the PDGA.

If there are many titles any one of them is not ' different from what is usual'

And therefore they are not special.
No - it is not implied at all.

It was a post about the NUMBER of titles awarded and at no point mentioned any greater or lesser value due to that number.

By definition a large number of titles denotes a lack of 'specialness'. That is the entire point.

This does not make much sense to me. If I have many children, it means each is less special?

I only play for one title. If I were to win it, I don't feel it would be diminished by someone winning MA1.

I included the dictionary definition in my first post to help you out. Can't do much more.

And sorry you caught me on a dickish day!
